Earth Hour is a JOKE!!!

Come on people!  How long will you be fooled by this so called “EARTH HOUR” movement?

Earth Hour celebrates ignorance, poverty and backwardness!

It’s really funny watching people on TV participate in this big piece of nonsense.  They’re saying that turning off the light for 1 hour will save the planet and will make the governments of the world aware of the issue that the planet is facing.  Hello!!! As if they are not aware of that already.   By the way, it is a fact that those people lighting those candles during that useless 60 minutes are causing more harm to the planet.

Here’s a photo of a house during Earth Hour and why I think the owner of the house did a better job than most of you out there.  Read the note that the owner posted with this photo.




We thought long and hard about the most environmentally friendly way to light our house for earth hour. Candles were out of the question, the carbon emissions are too high (most are made from parrafin wax, derived from oil) and they produce polluting smoke that I wouldn’t want my young son to be breathing. We’ve been lectured for years now about the dangers of second-hand smoke. Torches were just as bad, as disposable batteries are toxic and use a large amount of energy to produce, having higher CO2 emissions than mains electricity.

Furthermore both candles and batteries are mainly made in China these days, and the emissions from transport must also be taken into account. Candles are also a fire hazard, and because of their inefficiency are far more expensive than electricity.

So we finally settled on NZ-made renewable hydro-electricity as the lowest-emission, most eco-friendly way to light our house.
